KOTTAYAM: Kerala BJP chief K Surendran on Friday continued to bat for ‘Metro Man’ E Sreedharan as the CM candidate, saying the saffron party will form government in the state and people like Sreedharan will lead that government from the front.
Speaking to reporters in Konni in Pathanamthitta district, Surendran said there was no confusion regarding what he had said about Sreedharan in a speech delivered in Thiruvalla on Thursday.
“What I said in Thiruvalla was that the people of the state as well as the party workers wish the proximity and presence of a figure like Sreedharan ji. There is no doubt about that… People of Kerala want Sreedharan to lead from the front. However, it will be the national leadership of the party that will decide and announce this,” Surendran said, adding that Congress and CPM have been panicky since Sreedharan joined BJP.
